Drive-by shouter should apologize

Drive-by shouter should apologize


To the elderly gentleman with the white hair, white mustache driving the white Subaru down Van Buren Drive late Wednesday morning:

I am perplexed as to why you found it necessary to open your car window and shout at my son and I as we rode our bikes up Van Buren Drive. You shouted “a**holes” at us.

We have never met. You know nothing about us other than we get around by bikes. You have nothing upon which to base your judgment. I think I am a fairly nice person, I am active in the community, and I would like to think that I contribute positively to my community and to Missoula in general. The judgement you passed upon us was baseless and without foundation.

I know very little about you save for our one encounter. I can make a reasonably good assessment about you based on your actions and foul language. My son and I look forward to your apology.

Alex Gallego,
